What you can expect

Let me show you around my hometown, Szentendre - a small colorful jewelry box-like little town by the river Danube full of Art (we call it the City of Artists and Painters), medieval atmospheric cobble stoned narrow streets, mediterranean colored little houses, beautiful churches, nature, amazing food and coffee. Let's wander around together, like traveling back in time in this unique charming place which I can tell you a lot about as have been living there for 17 years now.

The Program is the following:

We will meet in Batthány Square from where will take a marvelous ship ride to Szentendre! According to your preference, we can go by train or meet there alternatively as well for a cheaper price!

In this tour I will take you from the noisy city to this peaceful little town. We will walk through the main square of the beautiful town centre where you'll hear the story of the town and the main square and other legends related to the cross and the name of the city.

We will also go to the Church Hill, a romantic place just above the main square where you will enjoy a beautiful sightseeing and where you can visit many other local charming churches.

We will follow the tour by walking through the Hungarian Folklore Shopping Street, a lovely but busy street that won't leave you disappointed! We will take the street down to the bank of the Danube, the popular Corso, where you'll get even more from the magical vibe of the town as you browse through Hungarian folklore products.

We will then go to the Corso, a pedestrian area by the river Danube, full of cafes, restaurants, a fantastic view to Szentendre Island. It is an amazing place for taking photos and where you'll have a lovely time walking by the river or trying one of it's charming cafeterias!

We will then take a well deserved lunch break in a lovely restaurant on the Corso. You should try the famous Hungarian Goulash soup or the lovely Serbian dishes! (Because the town was and still is originally populated by Serbians, so this way you can taste the real local flavours)

We'll end this tour in a sweet way, at Szamos Marcipán, which is the most famous Hungarian Marzipane producer and confectionary. Here you will have the chance to try their deliciously yummi cakes, creative coffee wonders and/or visit the Marzipane Museum for some sculpture wonders made from marzipane entirely!

Alternatively we can visit some of the famous art museums here if you're an art lover or visit Hungary's most famous open-air museum -Skanzen -which will take us for time-travel and show how life was like back in old times, when it was an agricultural village.

Then we take a train back to Budapest (which again can be a ship ride as well, it is up to you completely!)

The tour is completely tailored to your preferences, as this town has something to offer for everyone!:)

“Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.”

I live and travel by the words above as a guideline, but leading my own path. I want to share this with you, how to travel, discover and embrace the soul of the city, not like in an ordinary way:) I am all about digging to the soul of the place I discover, if you also want this beneath the surface experience, be one with the spirit of the city and discover some other dimensions, don't hesitate to join me to also show you these guidelines to help your own path :)"
